    I can't seem to get passed level 1. I'm using a torch lighter and
    holding it in for at least 20 seconds. Probably more like 30secs. I
    wish I had a bong, but the smoke isn't that bad with my spoon pipe.

    One thing I'm not sure about is that I instinctively swallow after I
    inhale. The irratation of the smoke doesn't make me want to cough as
    much as just to swallow. Does that cause me for some reason to not
    absorbed the smoke correctly? I notice that I don't exhale much smoke
    and sometimes when I burp a little smoke comes out.

    The first time I smoked marijuana, I swallowed a lot of it.....I puked my guts out. Maybe it was that we had 4 or 5 bowls, and that being my first time I couldn't handle it. I wouln't swallow smoke....

    I am no doctor but I asssume that the smoke needs to be in your lungs to be absorbed properly.

    try to take as big a hit as you can and then hold it for 20-30 sec and
    repeat. try that. It is also possible (very) that you
    are not getting enough smoke through the pipeand may need to get a
    larger pipe which can hold more smoke ie. water pipe/bong

    What extraction strength are you using? it's a lot easier to
    break through with 20x than 5x...about 4 times easier. you build
    up a tolerance rather quickly too, so smoking a bowl of 20x will be
    more effective than four bowls of 5x.

    I would say that using abong is also a big plus, as the water makes the smoke much less harsh, thus easier to take more.

    also, try not to swallow it. the salvinorin is absorbed in your lungs, not your stomach (to my knowledge.)
